You do realize that a future resale of you car may be hard, dont you ?
I actually disagree with this thought. From what I've seen, the more obscure the original configuration, the more appealing the car is years down the road. Car people go crazy for what's perceived as a one-of-one build, which partially explains why PTS cars command a premium at resale.

OP, you do what pleases you! It's your money and your baby.

I live for the day that someone will wrap their Boxster with iridescent pink/purple with glitter!:LOL::ROFLMAO::LOL:

Having said this, I am fine with my Cayman being Rhodium Silver with Carrera Classic wheels. It's just me!...
I just vinyl wrapped my 135i (was originally black)

I was considering yellow for the Boxster but why have 2 yellow cars !!!

Those green wheels are not a great look in my opinion. Having the same wheels but with satin black fill on the spokes is going to look a lot nicer.

Of course "its your car and you can do what you like with it"... but then we also say to fat people "carry on eating donuts" because everyone is scared of having an opinion these days in case people are offended. Well those donut munchers are still gonna die early but at least their feelings were intact.

So dont do it. Change the wheels. Just because things can be done, doesn't mean they have to be. What you've configured will look appalling. If you still want to do it, well, you've been warned.

...and my Prius driving neighbor was complaining that Porsches aren't "Green" enough.

I say whatever floats your boat. It wouldn't be my first choice of color scheme, but obviously my blacked out car wouldn't have been your first choice. You pay your money, you get what you want.

There's an all yellow 718 Boxster near me. When I say all yellow, I mean race yellow paint, race yellow wheels, race yellow roll hoops, the whole lot. If it can be yellow, it's yellow.

Oddly enough, it kind of works. Not to everyone's taste, but it's different. It's nice to see something wild in a sea of silver, black, and beige SUVs.

Congratulations on the car. I will be looking for that car around Atlanta. If you like the wheels get them, it is your car. You can always paint them black later for maybe $800 if you don’t like it.

Respect your opinion !!!

But I figured you don’t buy a Porsche not to be noticed.

I’ve had so many black, silver, white cars etc. I figured I’d go over the top on this one.

I can always have them repainted if I they don’t work out.

Surprisingly the body color paint on the 20” Carrera 5 spoke rims was only added to the 2022 model year wasn’t available on 2021’s.
Go big or go home... Everyone will notice you now. 🤣

I'm also new here.

Congrats on the new build but I agree with the others that darker wheels would contrast better with the green. If your concern is being noticed, do not worry. You WILL be noticed in a new Boxster but you'll attract the desired attention without
Hi


I just joined the forum and here are screen shots of my build.

Presently living in Georgia and taking delivery at the Atlanta delivery center.

Looking forward to participating in the discussions.

This is my first Porsche and hopefully will be delivered toward the end of the year.

This will be a 2022 model year Boxster.
.
Stay safe stay well.

The green color is nice on the vehicle but not on the wheels. Way too much green you need some contrast.
It's like wearing green pants with green shoes it just doesn't go together.. That's my honest opinion.

OP - as they say, go big or go home! Like your style, brother. Very audacious. Can’t wait to see it in real life. Please be sure to post!

Related tangent: +1 on whoever dropped that Kermit reference. I had a good friend in college who rocked a green ‘72 Ford Escort complete with a Kermit co-pilot.

To many miles of smiles!

Of course I’m not surprised people on the internet feel the need to chime in with their opinion when your original post didn’t ask for one.

Welcome to the forum, and enjoy the car in good health. It’ll be a blast to drive compared to your 135i.

It's a forum. It's purpose is discussions.
If you post something that's controversial/different from popular taste, of course you're getting opinions. A discussion surely is the sole purpose of a forum post.

I keep the BMW in Ct - where we have a summer home.

The Porsche which will replace my C43 AMG

Was deliberating whether to lay up or go for an island green 180 yards away...when my good friend and mentor shouted: "God hates a coward!"

Birdie :)!

Go for the gusto in life...Cheers!
